  2. Hi Legends
    I have Justin Westhoff and one trade left. Do I hold the trade and wait to see if I am in the GF or pull the trigger now. If I trade I have $466k to spend with not a lot on offer.

    TU: Trade
    TD: Hold the trade for next week

    Cheers

  3. A disastrous week has meant by 15 consecutive week hold on overall points in my cash league has now gone, plus I’m going up against a decent side in the prelim.

    Pending injury reports on Sloane and Marshall, my moves this week are to downgrade Clarke and upgrade Setterfield to Worpedo vs a Gold Coast outfit (benching Jez Cameron and bringing him in for Rd 23 vs Gold Coast).

      1. Yep, just need to avoid having BOTH Sloane and Marshall out, because then I’m up a certain creek without a paddle.

        SO…I’m off to perform a ritual to appease the SC gods for the week, wish me luck!

        1. Unfortunately with GC in the final round, you may find that Greene gets similar attention from Miller that week. I’d say Worpedo is more likely to cop the tag being the new Hawks ball magnet but with 4 trades up my sleeve and one of those 2 coming in for me this week I have the same decision to make

  4. I’ve 4 trades left – sounds great, but how to use them is killing me! Team is
    Def – Lloyd, laird, Williams, Hurn, Sicily, Smith (Logue, Gardner)
    Mid – cripps, macrae, Oliver, fyfe, yeo, Neale, treloar, m crouch (hind, hill, dunkley)
    R – Grundy, Gawn (sweet)
    Fwd – danger, Kelly, Boak, dunkley, heeney, Mundy (chol, hanrahan)

    $20k in bank ($2.5k short to trade hind to carter & Mundy to Marshall). So I’ll do one downgrade (probably chol to Carter) then:

    T/U – b Smith to Whitfield
    T/D – Mundy to worpel

    If I do Smith ( and hopefully win), I should be able to upgrade Mundy next week to Marshall who should score 300 against Sydney in the last round
    * any other suggestions welcome!

    Cheers!

    1. An option could be
      Out: M Chol, O Hanrahan
      In: H Andrews (via R Gardner) and basement dpp rookie

      Then the round after
      Out: N Hind, G Logue
      In: C Wingard/S Menegola, basement rookie

      But you will not be able to loop Andrews and Smith this round unless Logue is omitted.

      Another option could be:
      Out: M Chol, N Hind
      In: rookie and C Wingard/S Menegola

      Provides cover for fwd and mids and allows Mundy to be looped if Hanrahan misses.

      In regards to your options above I prefer the TU option involving B Smith to L Whitfield.

      2

      1. I like your thinking Adam – it’s certainly outside of the box. I can’t see Logue getting dropped though. Hanrahan…maybe – although whist they’re winning?
        Food for thought.
        Cheers

        1. Thanks. Thought I’d provide a couple of alternatives if you’d prefer to keep Smith or Mundy but your plans for both seem fine and good luck for the remainder of the season.

  5. Just the one trade left, do I

    TU – play aggressive, sideways trade an underperforming mid premo to Fyfe/Kelly (if named) for the final 2 rounds.

    TD – Hold, play it safe, there’s a good chance I’ll need it next week

  7. Hey guys, what’s my best move here?
    2 trades remaining and 71,800k in the bank
    Only interested in cash league.
    Def
    Lloyd, whitfield laird, houli, Sicily, Smith
    (Answorth, gardiner)
    Mid
    Macrae, fyfe, cripps, Neale, Sloane, oliver b crouch, bont (Hately, hill, scott)
    Ruck
    Gawn, Grundy (Clarke)
    Fwd
    Marshall, Kelly, danger, dunkley, greene, heeney (Chol, young)

    Any suggestions? Thinking of holding and bringing in a big gun for the GF

    1. He has had eye issues in the past let’s hope it wasn’t a fracture or something serious otherwise he will be fine to play

  8. 4 trades left, $390k in the bank, playing for league.

    Def: Whitfield, Williams, Lloyd, Laird, Hurn, Stewart (Birchall, Gardner)
    Mid: Macrae, Fyfe, Bont, Oliver, Cripps, Neale, B Crouch, M Crouch (Hill, Bewley, Carter)
    Rucks: Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
    Fwds: Dunkley, Dangerfield, Boak, Heeney, Kelly, Gray (Chol, Young)

    Assuming that there is no carnage this week I’m looking at Gray to Marshall and B Crouch to J Kelly (if named, if not then possibly Treloar), leaving me 2 trades and approx. $150k for next week.

    T/U: Good moves
    T/D: Reconsider

    1. Chris
      Firstly nice looking side and good luck with your league games
      Hurn and Gray are your weakest links also you need coverage on all lines
      Birchall out Carter to BL bench trade to Pickett ($102) makes $150
      Choi to Toby McLean ($317) with no Libba (1/2 weeks) costs $90
      Throw the $60k profit on your $390 then go BANG next week
      Coverage is important over the next weeks with the general hovering

    2. I’d do what you’re considering. Makes your team stronger and leaves you enough cash and trades to cover any injuries next week.
      Personally think/hope Hurn will go well this week. Think the Tigers typical entries will suit him much better.

      1

      0
      1. Thanks, I’m also considering Hurn to Houli and Gray to Marshall this week, and then going B Crouch to Kelly if I don’t need to use both trades for carnage next week.

        1. sounds good. Always good to get opinions but equally, best to go with your gut and do what YOU think is right.

          That way, you can’t blame anyone but yourself 😉

    3. An option could be
      Out: M Chol, B Bewley,
      In: J Kelly, J Bell

      140,000 left for a potential R Gray to R Marshall trade next week or trading out potential injured or omitted players.

      Or
      Out: M Chol, B Bewley
      In: R Marshall, J Bell

      160,000 left which can allow Birchall to Andrews in Rd23 or B Crouch to J Kelly.

        1. I’m staunchly against sideways trading in the remaining rounds apart from Rd23 and would only use it a last resort.

          Main reasoning is due to the inconsistency and volatility of scores as evident by M Crouch, J Sicily, etc in the past couple of rounds who have been traded out by others.

          Also it alleviates and minimises the injury risk as brining or pushing a premium to M9 means a rookie will not have to be fielded if an injury occurs to a current or recently selected player.

          2

          1. I agree Adam. Totally. I almost feel it’s easier for someone like me, who has a hole at M8, thanks to Lycett, and still have Lycett himself. If he’s not named this week then I’m almost FORCED to trade him and a rookie to two Uber’s with the cash I have.

            SCTers who are at full premo and have trades but little cash could be as well off holding as trading. An unenviable position.

            Congrats on finally getting Jelly back. You must be wrapped. Let’s hope he has a couple of rippers!

            1. Rarely in the position with trades in the last month and not involved in any cash leagues which largely impacts the advice offered regarding the situation and my personal experience.

              Would hate to see someone trade out a “premium” for another premium to see the recently departed one outscore the new addition or for the new addition to get injured on debut meaning a rookie will need to be fielded in place or another trade used on that position.

              Hopefully Kelly can have some big games to finish the season and no one else gets injured/misses finally allowing me to deploy my best 22, hopefully manage my 1st 2400 and finish inside the top 10,000.

              In regards to off-season comps would you be interested in joining me and hopefully other SCT’ers we can attract for the Sportsdeck NFL and NBA and SC BBL comps.

              1. Spot on. And we see it all too often.

                My understanding of NFL ended when Joe Montana and Jerry Rice won the SuperBowl with the 49ers!
                Larry Bird is the last NBL player I can recall watching and then there were people walking around with BRYANT on their backs and I felt … well pretty good.

                I watched a fair bit of BBL last year so would be keen to join any comp you have for that. I’ll be a rookie tho’ so go easy.

                Thanks for the invites Adam. Much appreciated and look forward to it. The BBL that is.

                0
                1. Great to have you onboard for BBL. Death Adder, Chillo, Father Dougal and I all managed to finish in the top 1000 with Death Adder and I both in the top 200. Far easier than AFL SC due to reduced injuries and relevant players with astute coaches gaining an advantage if they are able to successfully navigate the fixture. Will likely provide articles about it around December if possible along with league codes and rate my team threads like we did last year.

                  In regards to the other comps, knowledge of the game or players isn’t necessary as formats you lack knowledge on eliminates predispositions towards players regarding selection. I managed to finish in the top 25 out of 3000 for the NFL comp last year (ranked in the top 12 coming into the last round) with only knowing 2 to 3 players and only ever watching 1/2 to 1 match before the season.

                  1. Impressive. Will ask Schwarz for your email post-season if that’s ok? and we can take it from there.
                    Don’t have to bore SCTers on here that way!

          2. I agree and see your point, and know the importance of cover, but I also have to consider nullifying my opponent’s uniques that have the potential to go large and outscore my weakest players on each line. Teams will probably dictate my final decision.

  9. 2 trades left. $2k in bank. Into the Prelim of a couple of important leagues.

    Weakest link is having JCameron/Westhoff at F6/F7 although I am able to loophole them. But starting to think I need something better seeing both scored 50s on the weekend.

    TU – ditch Westhoff for Greene & Bewley-Carter to pay for it
    TD – ditch both, bring in Dunkley & a FWD rookie under $220k
    Comment – hold trades

  10. Prelim time indeed!

    Will post again later in the week, as I’m hoping that Lycett gets picked (doubtful) and that Marshall is fit to play.

    Two trades left and $286 300 in the bank.

    TEAM:
    DEF:
    ZWilliams Lloyd Hurn Stewart Sicily Crisp
    Naish Gardner(DEF/FWD)
    MID:
    Macrae Fyfe Oliver Cripps Neale Crouch Steele SETTERFIELD
    DClarke Bewley Owies(MID/FWD)
    RUC:
    Grundy Gawn
    ZClarke
    FWD:
    Dunkley Marshall Dangerfield Greene Heeney TKelly
    Lycett Bines

    I’m behind the 8-ball in ALL eight Prelim match-ups so am gonna go hard this week. Assuming Lycett isn’t named (why would he be given PTA’s current form), am thinking:

    TU: Lycett > Whitfield (via Gardner) and ZClarke > JKelly/Bont/Worpel (via Bines and Setters)
    This’ll give me cover on all lines and the ability to loophole Crisp and ANO (likely Hurn or Sicily this week).
    If Marshall is also OUT (but only for a week), I’ll bring in Whitfield and Worpel (FWD) and then loop Setters/DClarke at M8.

    TD: other thoughts would be most greatly appreciated.

    Thanks all …

      1. Thanks GD for the feedback.

        Have been through the remaining fixtures and if Sloane is fit, I think I might trade him IN. Shouldn’t get any attention the next couple of weeks (v COL and WBD), so could go huge. Also eliminates him as oppo’s POD (most seem to have him). If he’s OUT, that could be a huge advantage going Jelly or Treloar instead.

        Looking at DEFs, it’s a bit risky but Byrne-Jones is in some form right now and he has the best fixture for recent premo DEFs points-scoring from here (v NTH and FRE).

        Plenty will no doubt happen between now and team-drops anyway so we’ll see, but it’s good to lay some plans out.

        The reason I originally liked Jelly and Whitfield so much is because they play Sunday and I’ll have a chance to look at Crisp and Steele/Setterfield before making the decision(s). My concern is that they may not play two games!!

        Overthinking. Head spinning 😉

        1. Yep, mentioned last week that Sloane’s last two match-ups would free him up to go big; especially with Crows fighting for finals. Plus, Sloane was on track for 150~ before Crouch assassinated him (even when Crouch is out of my team he still finds a way to f*ck me lol).

          I also really like DBJ as a DEF pick, was my ideal Ryan replacement a couple weeks ago but I didn’t have the cash- seeing though you do, I’d defintely consider him. North and Freo (Port’s last two) usually opt for shallow entries and both have been poor inside 50, so DBJ should have a field day.

      1. Port Adelaide: Scott Lycett unlikely to return in Round 22.
        At the moment (Paddy) Ryder & (Peter) Ladhams are playing well, so that will make it more challenging for Scott. – Ken Hinkley via @1629senSA

    1. Telly and Heeney if Jelly’s back this week.

      Greene and a coin toss if not. Heeney has the better draw and won’t be tagged.

      Good luck.

      1. You think Allsaints? I would’ve thought Greene’s role wouldn’t change much seeing as he was the only one putting up a fight last week and they still have plenty of injuries. I’m considering leaving Tim Kelly out as he is just treading water at the moment. How he is Brownlow fav has me beat. If Marshall misses then these moves aren’t happening anyway.

          1. Nah, Chillo. He was playing Masten’s role on the wing. Cripps and Petch in the side isn’t sustainable, so expect Simpson to re-jig the line-up and have Hucthings back as a tagger.

        2. Was thinking about Miller this week to be honest!!

          Feel bringing in Worpel this week may disappoint many. Chasing points that have already gone. Have no doubt he’s a future gun and has been outstanding the last few weeks, but if he does cop attention from Miller and/or Hutchins, he may seriously struggle.

          Hope I’m wrong, but … don’t be disappointed if you do it and it goes Pete Tong.

    TD – Josh Kelly (if named)

    1. I’d go Hunter Clark if I didn’t have him, needed a DEF and the above two were my other options. Should score well the next two rounds, especially Rd23.
      Premo DEFs haven’t scored comparatively well against the Suns all year. Byrne-Jones has the best draw for the last two rounds if you can afford him.

  13. Need to win this week (obviously 😉
    3 trades and 40k in bank. What should i do?

    D: Williams, Lloyd, Hurn, Smith, Milera, Logue (Ryan, Quaynor)
    M: Macrae, Fyfe, Bontempelli, Cripps, Neale, B Crouch, Merrett, M Crouch (Clarke, Ross, Bewley)
    R: Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
    F: Dunkley, Marshall, Dangerfield, Boak, Kelly, Gray (Corbett, Young)

    Something needs to be done about Ryan, want to trade him to Whitfield, but just short on cash. Any ideas anyone? Cheers.

    1. I’d dump Bewley for a $102K rookie and bring in Whitfield, Byrne-Jones or Hunter Clark for Ryan. If you go Clark (see above), you’ll then have enough for an upgrade loophole should you make the GF.

      Good luck TK! 🙂

    Also any other ideas much appreciated!!

    1. Great team and situation. With the cover you possess there isn’t much point waiting until next as executing this week could provide a larger advantage.

      If J Kelly returns you could trade
      Out: M Chol, D Sheed/ B Crouch
      In: J Kelly, Z Merrett/ C Oliver

      Allows Gray to be looped at F6 and Taranto/Crouch at M8.

      Or
      Out: G Logue, M Chol
      In: B Houli, C Wingard
      Allows C Wingard to be looped at either M8 or F6 due to his DPP and B Houli allows Stewart or J Sicily to be looped.

      Another option could be
      Out: G Logue, M Chol
      In: J Howe, Z Merrett
      Allowing J Howe to loop with Stewart/Sicily at D6, Gray loop at F6 and Sheed and Crouch at M8.

    2. I’d trade Chol via Gray to Treloar. Use Riach and Gardner to loop M8/9 and F6/7. Looking v strong.
      Save the other trade for your GF.
      Good luck!

      1. The reason I’d save my last trade is that if Grundy is rested for finals, or Gawn … what will you do? Or,
        Any injury to your DEFs you’re also covered.

  17. 2 trades left
    TU Ziebell/Logue out for Boak/Carter (Freo)
    TD Ziebell/Young (St.K) for Narkle/Toby McLean

    TD gives me better DEF cover in Logue rather than Carter and allows me to loophole Narkle and McLean both weeks.

  18. Any advice appreciated on how to tackle the next two weeks

    3 trades left, $57900 in the bank.

    DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, ZWilliams, Smith, hurn, Houli (Logue/gardner)
    MID: Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, MCrouch , Neale, Oliver, gaff, Yeo (carter, Dunkley, hill)
    RCK: Grundy, Gawn (forte)
    FWD: Danger, Dunkley, Kelly, Marshall, Heeney, Boak (Hanrahan, Langlands)

    Thinking forte to bines in case a ruckman goes down and Logue to Andrews to loop

    1. Hi Disco, Am I missing something but how does Forte to Bines help you if a ruckman goes down? You don’t have anyone on the forward line to swap with Bines? Are you going to bring someone in with your last trade?
      I would just keep the last trade and trade out either Grundy or Gawn, if one doesn’t play and use the Bines trade else where. You have lots of options.
      Great team.

      1. LOL Shite you’re right Chaos. Not sure why I had it in my head that Marshall was ruck/fwd.

        I have plenty of options but none are guaranteed to improve my team.
        I was a second away from trading Mcrouch to Treloar last week and look how that worked out.

          1. Mate I was hoping you would tell me.
            Might go the Andrews (back) or Toby McLean(mid/fwd) cover. Leaning towards Andrews as the backline has been so Puss

            1. Funny. I’ve been through every player I have and considered all likely match-ups for the last two rounds and am pretty happy.
              Besides, I have a hole to fill at M8 having held Lycett last week, swinging Heeney to his rightful spot at D6, I looped Setters and Clarke to win what I could. This week I’ll be bringing in Treloar or Sloane for someone to fill M8. That leaves me with a trade to use tactically over the weekend if I look like losing my big cash League prelim and/or a few on here. Ideally I want to keep the last one for Rd23. Like you say, if Grundy or Gawn go down I’ll be farked, particularly if I trade Lycett!

              Yours is a very different situation.
              Being at full premo with 3 trades, you’d almost rather have an injury to force your hand!

              You could make a sideways trade to someone you think will score better than someone you currently have!

              The three I really like are Byrne-Jones, Treloar and Sloane. Based on form, match-ups and club’s position for the last two weeks.
              Who goes is up to you!

              Another thought is if you can get Sloane and a $102k rookie for Hill and Logue to loophole Taranto and a WCE player then you could do that. But that leaves you with one trade and no cover for RUC, DEF or FWD lines for Rd23 and only one trade.

              If I were you, I’d probably have a think:
              – who’s the one player I really want (look at your match-ups) that is gonna improve my likely points while nulling an opponent or gaining an advantage?
              Ideally in one trade. That is, who can go? Or who am I most concerned about?

              Ideally keep two trades up til Saturday. You’ve then got 1 to use over the weekend if critical to your aims and at least 1 for Rd23 injuries. Ideally two!

              Good luck!

              1. Thanks for your input AS. Yes I am hoping for an injury or two to common players.
                Treloar is my main concern and I wouldn’t mind getting in Greene but it’s a lucky dip as to who I trade out hence my slight preference to strengthen the bench

            2. Thinking about it a bit more, if you don’t NEED to use one after teams are dropped (you might even gain a big advantage, eg Sloane not making it) and see how your Friday match-ups go. There are a fair few popular premos playing. You should have a better idea on Saturday what needs to be done.
              Have a few plans, but hold them until you NEED/WANT to use them!

  20. Trade Taranto to Zorko, Yeo or Merrett? 1 trade left.

    Tu: Yes
    Td: No

    Have Logue, Dylan Clarke, Kyle Dunkley and Setterfield (forward line) as cover.

  21. One trade left. $42k in the bank.

    My weakest areas.
    D6 Smith to Sicily… Play GC…
    M8 Cunnington to Zerrett/Duncan…

    Who do I upgrade? Or just keep the trade.

    1. GCS as an opponent hasn’t tended to dish out big scores to opposing premo DEFs. I’d also go Cunnington … or better still hold the trade and only use it if you HAVE to.
      Having a trade left next week would be massive!

      1. Cheers Will & AS.
        Might just leave team as is.

        DEF: Hurn, Lloyd, Whitfield, Laird, Williams, Smith…
        (Answerth, Gardner)
        MID: Neale, Cripps, Macrea, Fyfe, Oliver, Bontempelli, Sloane, Cunnington…
        (Clarke, Cameron, Langlands)
        RUCK: Grundy, Gawn…
        (Bine)
        FWD: Danger, Boak, Kelly, Dunkley, Marshall, Heeney…
        (Hill, Young)

        Hopefully get the win and that one trade would be gold the following week. I’ll take the gamble.

  23. I haven’t spoken to Schwarz or Motts about how we’re wrapping up the season yet, but, based on the fixture, I would assume that tomorrow is the last Rare Gems for the year. What would you all prefer?

    TU: A look at some in-form PODs who could help get you over the line in your prelims/GFs.
    TD: A look back at the best rare gems of the season.

    1. Clarry OLIVER pls Sal. Especially compared to Treloar (same game). I know he had 7 clangers, but Toby GREENE had 11 and look how he went! Not that I’m complaining as an owner 🙂
      Thanks Sal.

  25. One trade left, only 8k in the bank,
    Thinking Chol to Narkle for bench/loophole cover. He showed what he could do last week and I have Jy Simpkin as my F6 … I’ve got nothing to lose!
    T/U – Go for it
    T/D – Save the trade for injury carnage come GF week

    1. I’d wait to see how you’re matching up before doing anything and save it if you can afford to. An injury next week with no trades will hurt.
      Only use it this week if you HAVE to would be my thought on it.

    1. If Sloane plays, which it’s looking increasingly like he will, I’d only go Daniel to Dunkley. The other one can wait. Use it when you NEED to.
      Good luck

    1. They’ve tended to go to Macrae first. I think Bont will push deep if he cops it. Same with Dunks but perhaps to a lesser degree.
      I think we need someone at the game who can post the initial match-up in those 10 seconds before lockout 😉
      More seriously, I’m steering clear with the C this week. Plenty of safer options.

  28. 4 Trades 320k. 2 big cash league finals.
    D6 Brodie Smith
    M8 Heeney (Answerth bench 350k)

    Current backline is: Whitfield, Lloyd, Williams, Laird, Sicily, Smith
    Mid: Macrae, Fyfe, Oliver, Cripps, Neale, Gaff, Sloane, Heeney

    I’ll have to wait and see with Heeney Friday night loophole, but does anyone have an opinion in backline, I’m not sold on Houli but other options: Hurn, Simpson, Stewart don’t entice either. Midfield, basically just want highest scorer: Bont, Yeo, Treloar, Jelly?

    1. Darcy byrne jones is your backline answer. Thank me later

      Bont could get deboar tag. Go treloar for sure. Kelly next best.

      1. DBJ had a 52 against North earlier this year?

        Role change?

        Admit Treloar should be answer, Treloar, Kelly, Yeo have me head scratching.

  29. Have two trades left, but want to save one for next week just in case of injury, especially if Gawn or Grundy don’t play. I don’t have any pressing issues injury wise now that Marshall and Sloane appear right to play, so Steele and Hawkins appear my two weakest links.
    Should I go
    T/U – Steele to Duncan
    T/D – Hawkins to Robinson

    1. Gee I wouldn’t go either. They could both backfire. Keep for next week and upgrade to better players like Treloar, Dunkley and co who you don’t have.

  30. My team is:
    DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, Stewart, Logue, Laird, Sicily (Gardner, T Watson)
    MID: Macrae, Fyfe, Neale, Bont, Cripps, Pendles, Sloane, Cunnners (Bewley, Hayes, Hill)
    RUC: Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
    FWD: Dunkley, Marhall, Danger, Boak, Heeney, Kelly (Chol, Young)

    Currently have 3 trades and $3200 ITB
    Don’t have enough to trade Logue to premo. Was thinking of Chol to cheap MID/FWD and Bewley to $384K DEF (via Watson) to loop with Logue.

    TU: Andrews
    TD: Rozee (PA have a close game to time to Freo)
    Comment: JJ or any other suggestion

    Cheers

  34. Got a big problem, Need a ruck under $470k?

    Options are

    Sandi-
    Good- Tonned up last week and plays Clarke this week, Retiring so surely gives all he has got
    Bad- Plays Lycett and Ryder GF week,
    Does Darcy take points of him? Does he play the last week in Adelaide or is this his final game?

    Stef Martin-
    Good- Plays a ruckless geelong this week and a nank the following week, Can also have a massive
    Bad- Omac does seem to effect him, Will that effect a bigger score that i need?

    Shane Mumford-
    Good- Should monster English this week and go alright against Witts next week
    Bad- Dawson does take alot of points off him, Does Dawson play as he has just retired?

    Or anyone else you think?

  35. 3 trades left, $138k in the bank.

    DEF: Lloyd, Whitfield, ZWilliams, Crisp, B Smith, Sicily (Birchall/Gardner)
    MID: Macrae, Cripps, Fyfe, Bont, Neale, BCrouch, M Crouch, Jelly (Hind, D Clarke, Hill)
    RCK: Grundy, Gawn (Bines)
    FWD: Danger, Dunkley, Kelly, Marshall, Heeney, Lycett (Chol, R Young)

    Any ideas at all here gents?? Obviously one trade for Lycett to Greene/Worpel but unsure whether to use the other to upgrade a weak spot in defence(Crisp or Smith) or weaker midfielder(B Crouch) to a Treloar?

    Any advice greatly appreciated!
